    1. How did you find out about Betfair trading?

    I used betfair for betting on US horse racing because the prices were so much better.

    One day I realized the priced dropped so much in one of the horses I had that I could "bet a larger amount on the pink square price" (english is not my first language and we don't lay here so I did not even know the term) to make a sure win.

    2. How long have you been trading on Betfair?
    2 months or so.

    3. What are your most common mistakes when trading?

    Since I used to be a bettor, I sometimes cannot help but just betting when the price is too good. But I am doing it less and less know.

    4. Do you use Geeks Toy as your preferred Betfair Trading Software?

    Yes

    5. Have you ever taken a course on sports trading?

    No, but when I started I read a book on trading and watched a lot of videos on youtube of people using the toy or other similar software

    6. What other things do you find help in your trading? { TV Pics, Oddmatcher etc. }

    I trade American racing mostly and live video is a must, as the markets often close at random times.

    1. Heard about ST on a forum as a way of placing bets quicker. Read about Adam Todd and the whole concept of scalping/trading on horse racing made sense.

    2. Traded for 18 mths part time whilst learning the ropes, and full time for the last 12 months.

    3. Lay High/ Back Low. A concept that doesn't work and always ends up in ugly red figures.

    4. Yes.

    5. Never completed a course. Bought "Mastering Betfair" by Pete Nordsted which I found was a worthwhile read. Have downloaded various EBooks recommended on this forum.

    6. Majority of my trading is on Aust. horses. Must have on course odds fluctuations, corporate bookmaker odds and Sky Channel/TVN pictures.

    I first found out about Betfair five years ago from a guy who used to work for Brimarden, from the moment I logged into Betfair and saw the odds jumping about all over the place I was hooked.

    I have been trading properly for about two years.

    My most common mistake is scalping a swing trade, although I am letting my profits run now instead of panicking , my profit has trebled since I have been doing this.

    Yes

    I haven't taken any courses but I would consider doing Jack's course just in case there are any gaps in my trading knowledge that need filling.

    I use patternform when trading as some timed the Dobbing selections shorten in last 5-10 minutes to the off and I use tv for in-running trading as I do a mixture of pre-race and in-running.
